Oral health overview

You and your dentist will review your medical history, along with diet and medications that could impact your oral health. Feel comfortable asking questions or addressing any concerns with your care team. If needed, they can screen your mouth to check for gum disease or oral cancer.

Dental X-rays

In most cases, your dentist will conduct four bite wing X-rays. More dental X-rays may be recommended if deemed medically necessary. Your dentist will work with you to determine what’s best.

Dental check-up FAQs

Aspen Dental dentists recommend regular dental check-ups and hygiene appointments to maintain optimal oral health. We encourage you to visit your local office at least once a year. Some dental professionals may even recommend a check-up once every 18-24 months if you’re at low risk for oral infection.

If you’re at risk of gum disease, oral infection or another oral health issue, getting a dental check-up at least once a year is the best way to maintain a healthy smile. At Aspen Dental, we’ll do everything we can to enhance the health of your teeth, jaw and gums.

Regular dental check-ups are a great opportunity to examine your overall oral health and to identify if it’s time for an oral hygiene appointment, better known as a teeth cleaning. During your check-up, you'll be able to ask your dentist any questions you may have and discuss best practices for things like brushing teeth, flossing, molar growth, impaction and more. They may even make recommendations, including getting x-rays, to ensure you’re getting the care your smile deserves.

The cost of a dental check-up at Aspen Dental varies depending on your location and the practice. Many dental insurance plans cover routine dental check-ups. We do not accept Medicaid. The average national price of a dental check-up at Aspen Dental starts at $145. For more detailed information, you can learn more at our dental check-up cost page.
